The Curious Coach Podcast

Episode 102:
Interview: Michael Cahill

In this interview edition, I got to spend time talking with Michael Cahill, a coach, trainer, facilitator and someone who’s gone on, and continues to travel on, a journey filled with curiosity, learning and understanding – not only about us as humans but also a deep exploration of himself.  In this interview, we discover how Michael went from staring out as an equity analyst and then set off another journey.  We covered a range of topics that went from different coaching modalities, coaching presence, our left and right hemispheres of our brain, the importance of what beliefs you’re holding about your client, the link between success and love, the unconscious mind and then a sprinkling of mBraining and a small touch on systemic work… and we still had lots more to talk about.  Hopefully that might happen in a part 2, in the near future.   So, grab a cuppa, sit back, and enjoy this wide ranging conversation.

Interview: Sonya Shellard

In this full-length interview episode, I had the pleasure of talking with Sonya Shellard, a UK based accredited executive coach, coach trainer, supervisor, Managing Director, and co-founder #RideTheWave – a professional coach training provider with a coaching model built around the wave metaphor.  And you’ll hear that metaphor bubble up all the way through this wonderful conversation.  

Aside from discovering more about #RideTheWave, we also explored how she left the corporate world and continued her own journey into coaching; her passion for connection, community and diversity, and touch briefly on the Association for Coaching.

Interview: Tracy Sinclair, PCC

Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing Tracy Sinclair, PCC.  Tracy is an executive coach, coach trainer, coach mentor, coach supervisor and much much more!  And if that wasn’t enough, Tracy also serves on global board of the ICF.   In our conversation we talked about her own journey from working in the financial services industry by day, whilst supporting drug and alcohol addicts and their families as a counsellor at night; how she then discovered coaching; her own beliefs and thoughts around the potential for coaching to really impact societal change; right through to her writing a book that aims to bring the new ICF competencies to life – and much more!

I really enjoyed this interview.  The depth, the richness and in some ways, how passionate Tracy is for the coaching profession.  ‘Evangelic’ is a word that pops up during this interview;  and it does seem very fitting.

In this extensive interview we’ll hear about some of the mistakes and learnings that he made along the way, the importance of authenticity, finding your niche, how he came to be involved with the ICF and how he missed out on a dream gig which would have involved coaching in the Maldives.  We’ll also hear his thoughts on the future of coaching and how this may be disrupted by technology such as AI.  In fact, we covered a lot!
